Hello Everybody, it has been a while since I’ve talked about my Daily10 exercise regime and on the first anniversary I want to share with you some good news I’ve hit my target goal of 220lbs (the weight I was when I first entered the USA)… Yay!
It has been a long while since I last posted an article about my journey into losing weight and getting fitter, you will be pleased to know I am still on this journey and now sitting at 225lbs (down from 260lbs this time last year). On my last post about my #Daily10 journey I had stated I was switching gears and looking at maintenance over losing weight – the conclusion being I’m at the point now that muscle mass would be lost instead of actually weight. I am simply 5lbs away from the weight I was in my twenties and I don’t think I can get any further.
Hey Everybody 🙂 If you’ve been following my #Daily10 tweets you will know that over the last 120 days I’ve lost a significant amount of weight, while raising my general fitness levels. It has been quite a quest, but now it is time to change gears.
Omigosh… Here I stand 90 full days after starting my #Daily10 Challenge and I cannot believe I’ve made it this far. It seems an age since I decided to make this change in my lifestyle and now I am starting to feel some of the benefits.
Something clicked in my head during inktober month… If I could produce 31 sketch card pieces in 10 minutes a day, could I affect another change? While I am not making excuses, the last three years have been hard and I’ve not been taking care of myself as I should have been.
My job as a Web Designer, and my after work hobby as an Indie Creator, Writer, Publisher, Artist all lead to a more sedentary lifestyle. Which means the most exercise I get is moving from desk chair, to well… desk chair.
I am as they say suffering from Shatner spread, I am overweight and things I used to find easy I now find harder to do. I get overheated quicker, my blood pressure ain’t great and my back starts hurting if I stand for longer than 10 minute at a time… It is time to change this, and that is what #daily10 is about.
